Captain America: Civil War Trailer Released

Captain America: Civil War

Marvel dropped their much-discussed Captain America: Civil War trailer during tonight’s Jimmy Kimmel Show. I guess Disney wanted to dominate the movie news cycle for another day absent any real Star Wars reveals.  Of course, Disney using the ABC late night talk show to drop major trailers and cast appearances has become something of a pattern for the last few years, so beyond the fact that The Force Awakens doesn’t arrive in theaters for another few weeks this isn’t that much of a surprise. Actually, in retrospect, this early drop is a way to not get lost amid the 8,000 other trailers debuting with Star Wars next month, so good show on that account. Anyway, now we have the first official trailer for Captain America: Civil War, and it’s frankly a doozy. Not only does it look quite exciting, it establishes a few very important items.

Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.

Joining Evans and Downey Jr. in the film are Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier alongside Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo, Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man. The film will also debut Marvel’s new Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War will be released on May 6, 2016.

James Gunn Comments on Guardians of the Galaxy Rumors

Guardians of the Galaxy

From the desk of James Gunn (Director of Guardians of the Galaxy):

All right. From this moment on I’m going to stop commenting on any rumors surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, because, eventually, someone is going to come up with a spoiler that has some truth to it. That said, the rumors surrounding Quill’s parentage at the present moment are completely false, and aren’t even close to the truth. I don’t know how people come up with this stuff, but it certainly isn’t through legitimate sources.

Also, I get the desire to get “scoops” on character inclusion and casting choices, etc. But since when is a plot spoiler a “scoop”? Is this really what fandom wants to know? Plot details in movies ahead of time? I got in this business because I love movies, and I think most film journalists are the same way. And spoiling plot details doesn’t add to the enjoyment of the film-going experience. So bravo to those folks out there who don’t partake in this sort of thing.

But, as I said, eventually someone will actually spoil some detail of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. So this will be my last comment squelching a rumor until May 2017. But if you do pick up on some plot detail between now and then, be aware, A) They are likely full of shit, as has been everyone so far who has claimed to have had inside info, and B) We’re creating a film that doesn’t rely on plot twists to be an enjoyable experience. They’re only a very small part of what we’re cooking up for you.

Man in the High Castle Subway Ads are Beautiful and Offensive to Morons

Man in the High Castle Subway

If you lived under a rock, never studied world history, never read a book or your name is Steve Rogers and you just woke from coma, then I could see why you would be offended by Amazon's Man in the High Castle Subway Ads.

For those of you who are late to the party, the Allies won the war not the Axis Powers. The ads you are seeing are that of a fictional universe where the Allies lost. But let me be clear, this is all FICTION, fiction means, simply, not real. Now maybe your still confused and that's okay, just go find a tack hammer and hit yourself over the head, repeatedly, because you are a retard.

 Now for those of you who have some ability to think above the level of a third grader and are not influence by the twats who are upset, because it's the hip thing to be, here is what Man in the High Castle is about.

The Man in the High Castle was originally a alternate history novel by the author Philip K. Dick. Set in 1962, fifteen years after an alternate ending to World War II in which the war lasted until 1947, the novel concerns intrigues between the victorious Axis Powers, Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany, as they rule over the former United States, as well as daily life under the resulting totalitarian rule.The show, as many other adapted works do, follows almost the same model but makes a few tweaks to be better suited for the screen.

I hope that everyone who reads this takes the time to at least read the book or watch the series. You're robbing yourself of a great story if you don't.

Enjoy the photos because this is the last you will see of it. As of 11/24/15 Amazon has decided to discontinue the ads wrapping the entire 42nd Street subway shuttle cars that had been scheduled to be displayed until Dec. 14.

Real Life Horror: A Million Spiders Invade Memphis

Spiders Invade Memphis

In Memphis Tennessee some residents say it looks like a horror movie is playing out in their neighborhood. That’s because it’s been infested with millions of spiders.

Residents on May Street and Chelsea Avenue said their neighborhood has been infested with spiders. The eight-legged problem is causing headaches for the homeowners. The nearly half-mile long spider web covers the grass near several homes. Neighbors say the spiders are crawling on their porches; one homeowner says they sometimes cover the door of her home.

Memphis Zoo curator Steve Reichling said “It’s a mass dispersal of the millions of tiny spiders that have always been in that field, unnoticed till now. It could be juveniles – millions – in a big emergence event, or adults of a tiny species – probably a sheetweb spider – leaving for some reason possibly knowable only to them. In fields and meadows, there are often literally millions of spiders doing their thing, unseen and unappreciated by us. I would not want to live in a world where such things were no longer possible. The presence of these spiders tells us that all is well with nature at that location,” 

Fireworm Fossil Rollinschaeta Named After Henry Rollins

Henry Rollins

A group of scientists from the University of Bristol in the UK and the Natural History Museum in London have named a newly discovered species of particularly muscular fossil fireworms after D.C. hardcore punk rocker and He Never Died star, Henry Rollins.

During a study of the fossilized remains of the Rollinschaeta myoplena the team was able to determine the species was a close relative of earthworms and leeches as well as a member of the fireworm (Amphinomidae) family. All of which have soft bodies.

According to Greg Edgecombe of the Natural History Museum, (the co-author of the study) this was the first time that “any fossil has been identified by its muscle anatomy.” Sadly, the Rollinschaeta is extinct so we can’t all run out and start a new hardcore punk rock worm colony in our basements.

Check out the trailer for Henry Rollin's latest movie He Never Died below:

Canary Being Cast For Justice League and Birds of Prey Movie

Birds of Prey

A new rumor suggests that Black Canary will be making a debut in the DC Extended Universe, and no, it won't be Caity Lotz or Katie Cassidy of the DC TV Universe.

Abbey Lee of Mad Max: Fury Road and Alona Tal or Burn Notice and Supernatural are being eyed for the role of Black Canary. The debut is said to come in Justice League: Part One or Two.

The rumor also suggests that Black Canary plans are not limited to Justice League ensemble films but also a Birds of Prey movie which is in development.

In the DC comics' post-Crisis continuity, both Dinah Drake and her daughter Dinah Laurel Lance use Black Canary as their secret identity. While Dinah Laurel Lance has the super-charged sonic attack known as the 'Canary Cry', both individuals are masters at hand-to-hand combat. While it's suspected that Black Canary will make her appearance in Justice League Part 1, director Zack Snyder may wait until Justice League Part 2 to unleash her. And with the first installment not that far away, casting is said to be heating up.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to open worldwide on March 25, 2016. Justice League Part 1 comes to theaters November 17th, 2017. Justice League Part 2 comes to theaters June 14th, 2019.

Jessica Jones and Luke Cage's History

Jessica Jones Luke Cage

Netflix just released the Jessica Jones series this week to an awesome reception from Marvel comic book fans and non-fans alike. Many probably have or had no idea who Jessica is and that's alright, but if you did have some knowledge of the character then you probably noticed a nod or two while watching the series.

I don't think I should have to say this, but there will be spoilers from here-on-out. Not just spoilers for this season but possible spoilers for next season as well. So just to be clear, there will be SPOILERS below. You've been warned.

 Jessica Jones

Jessica's real name was Jessica Campbell. She was present when Peter Parker was bitten by the irradiated spider which gave him his powers. She had a crush on him, and had just plucked up the courage to speak to him when he was distracted by the bite.

Jessica's father received tickets for Disney World from his boss Tony Stark (Iron Man). On the way home, their car collided with a military convoy carrying radioactive chemicals. Her family was killed, and, after spending several months in a coma, she awoke, stirred by the first coming of Galactus outside her hospital room. She was placed in an orphanage and adopted by the Jones family.

Jessica later discovered that her radiation exposure granted her super strength, limited invulnerability, and flight. She later witnessed a fight between Spider-Man and Sandman in her class, which inspired her to use her abilities as a hero.

Jessica's first attempt at being a hero cam in the form as Jewel. Jones was an upstart hero with a fairly uneventful career until she intervened in a disturbance at a restaurant involving longtime Daredevil foe Zebediah Kilgrave (the Purple Man). Kilgrave used his power of mind control to place Jones under his command, psychologically torturing her and forcing her to aid his criminal schemes. After eight months, Jones began to lose the distinction between his will and her own. Kilgrave then sent Jones to kill Daredevil, erroneously directing her to the Avengers Mansion. Jones attacked the first hero she saw there in a red costume, the Scarlet Witch. The mind control began to wear off and Jones attempted to flee, but she was caught and severely injured by the Vision and Iron Man. She escaped due to the intervention of Carol Danvers (Ms. Marvel), the only Avenger who actually knew her, and she took her to safety.

Jessica opened a private detective agency after that and quit being a superhero. Given her background, she was sought out by clients with superhero connections. Despite her wish to leave the superhero life, she found herself repeatedly drawn back into it. Longtime friend Carol Danvers set Jones up with Scott Lang (2nd Ant-Man), and the two dated for several months. She also had an off-and-on affair with Luke Cage.

Kilgrave, still obsessed with Jones, escaped from high-security incarceration. He attempted to break her spirit by making her experience her worst nightmare: discovering Lang and Cage in a tryst with her friend, Danvers. This time, the mental defenses Grey had given her allowed Jones to free herself from his control. She knocked him out and he was recaptured.

Luke Cage and Jones admitted their feelings for each other and after becoming pregnant with his child, Jones and Cage began a committed relationship.

Luke Cage

Luke Cage, born Carl Lucas, was setup and imprisoned after Willis Stryker plants drugs on him and calls the cops. Luke is consumed by rage over Stryker's betrayal and engages in frequent brawls and escape attempts. Eventually he is transferred to Seagate Prison off the coast of Georgia where research scientist Dr. Noah Burstein recruits Lucas as a volunteer for experimental cell regeneration based on a variant of the Super-Soldier process he had previously used to empower Warhawk. Burstein immerses Lucas in an electrical field conducted by an organic chemical compound; when he leaves Lucas unattended, Rackham alters the experiment's controls, hoping to maim or kill Lucas. Lucas' treatment is accelerated past its intended limits, inducing body-wide enhancements that give him superhuman strength and durability. He uses his new power to escape Seagate and makes his way back to New York, where a chance encounter with criminals inspires him to use his new powers for profit.

 After a one-night stand with a drunken Jessica Jones, Cage's life is briefly thrown into disarray by Jones' reaction to the fling. The two make peace while working as bodyguards for Matt Murdock (Daredevil). Cage extends emotional support to Jones when she is forced to revisit past abuses by Kilgrave and Cage's feelings for her grow. When Jones reveals that she is pregnant from their tryst, she and Cage move in together. Soon afterward, Jones becomes a superhuman consultant with the Daily Bugle. After she is attacked by the Green Goblin during a Bugle investigation, Cage, helped by Spider-Man, deliberately attacks Norman Osborn in order to provoke him into revealing he is the Goblin. Luke and Jessica then have a daughter, whom they named Danielle, in honor of Danny Rand. Soon thereafter, he and Jessica are married.

That's just a quick overview of their history together in the comics. Now if you have watched the show then you know there is some major variations, but they are made for the better and to ground the series in a more realistic way. Hopefully though we will see the marriage and baby in a later season, but I can not figure out why they did do a Daredevil cameo given his history with the Purple Man. But this is only the beginning and I'm sure they will cross over at some point.
